    4-4 A defensive team can score 2 points on a safety by forcing the offensive team to ground the ball in their own end zone. This is quite unusual by itself but having 2 teams do it twice in a game would be extremely unlikely.

      That’s it.

      It’s rare for it to happen once, but for it to happen four times with no other scoring would be exceedingly rare.

      Apparently at the rate at which safeties are scored in the NFL, it would be expected to happen once in 4 billion years.
